While we suffer with the onset of the Chicago winter, Loyola is down in the Virgin Islands for the Paradise Jam enjoying a little more summer. The Ramblers had Sunday off from the tournament and went snorkeling. They took a break from their afternoon to conquer the Mannequin Challenge.
Of course, there’s full breakdown and analysis below.

As you can see, there’s a lot going on here. So let’s break it down.
The video gets off to a slow start with some generic poses from forward Maurice Kirby and walk-on Byron Burt. Things heat up a bit as we see freshman guard Bruno Skokna munching on some potato chips and walk-on Jake Baughman’s sunburned back.
Once we move past that, the real fun begins.
Junior guard Tyson Smith is on the phone and pointing into the distance. Little does he know, the person on the other end of the line cannot see what he is pointing at. Dang millenials.
Forward Aundre Jackson is rocking his Paradise Jam sunglasses for a selfie while guard Clayton Custer makes up for his average post with an American Flag bathing suit.
Loyola fans will be happy to see that, yes, freshman Matt Chastain can in fact still stand on two legs despite tearing his ACL last Monday.
As the camera turns to the left, we see Cam Satterwhite with his arms raised out to the sides. We all know this would’ve looked better near the railing a la Rose in Titanic. Freshman mistake.
Fittingly, Milton Doyle steals the show just chilling quietly in his snorkeling gear, although it’s overshadowed by an unknown man — probably a boat staffer — walking around in the back and messing up the entire shot. It’s early in the season, so we’ll forgive the mental mistakes.
Loyola wraps up its Paradise Jam trip Monday against Washington State with tip off scheduled for 2 p.m. CT.
